It's Tag Crane's job to be the life of the party. Traveling from one exotic locale to another is just part of running the luxurious Crane Hotel empire. But even paradise isn't perfect. Devising a new business strategy is keeping Tag up at night-and so is the Great Dane barking at all hours in the apartment below his. To muzzle the problem, Tag charges downstairs . . . right into the most beautiful, blond distraction he's ever seen.

Dog-sitting by day, bartending by night. It's not exactly the life Rachel Foster dreamed of. But when Tag Crane rushes in, all mountain-man shoulders and obscenely sexy smile, needing her help for the Crane Hotels, it's a fantasy come true. What's the harm in a fun no-strings fling? Only a fool would give her heart to a billionaire player like Tag-until suddenly the one man who can't be caught is the one flirting with forever . . .

Once again Jessica Lemmon proves she’s a force in the contemporary romance world. The second book in the Billionaire Bad Boys series features the youngest of the Crane boys, Tag. The free spirited, no strings attached playboy meets his match in Rachel Foster, the serious, self-deprecating cute blonde bartender. 

Tag Crane intrigued me from his cameos in book one of the series. His fun loving personality, his jokes, and his seemingly uncaring attitude mixed with the descriptions of his looks – well look no further because this is a billionaire I wanted to get to know. As it turns out, Tag is deeper than he comes off but his effortless charm and appeal never fades. Rachel Foster is a girl burnt badly once and she has no plans to stick her hands in the proverbial oven again anytime soon. Trying to put herself back together and regain a semblance of confidence she meets the uber confident Tag. Their story takes off in a fun and flirty manner from there. There were a few times that I wasn’t feeling their connection. Their passion at times was timid then almost forced it seemed like. Something about Rachel threw me off and even Tag at times I couldn’t justify. However, I think their individual issues just got in the way a bit more than expected and the manner in which their relationship evolved was still enjoyable to read. 

With their respective best friends providing funny commentary and intelligent insight randomly throughout these two embark on an interesting relationship. Appearances from both older brother Reese and Merina happen as well. And we finally meet Eli Crane, the mysterious military man of a Crane brother – who I cannot wait read next in the The Bastard Billionaire. While The Billionaire Next Door can surely be read as a standalone I wouldn’t personally recommend you skipping book one of the series where Tag Crane is first introduced as a secondary character. If you love contemporary romance with hot alphas and the women that bring them to their knees you don’t want to miss Jessica Lemmon’s effortless writing and captivating story telling in the Billionaire Bad Boys series.
